Archer Hotel Downtown Napa's Neighborhood
Archer's Napa boutique hotel is set in the heart of burgeoning downtown Napa, soon to be surrounded by the distinctive shops and dining of First Street Napa and just steps from the Napa Riverfront and Oxbow Public Market. With dozens of walkable tasting rooms, world-class restaurants and live entertainment, downtown Napa is poised to be the next great Napa Valley destination.
First Street Napa
Reimagining the wine country lifestyle and what a wine country getaway can be, First Street Napa is your gateway to Napa Valley’s good life. Urbane, evolved, and exceedingly inviting, this landmark destination is soon to be home to destination level dining, art galleries, chic boutiques, tranquil public spaces, and a burgeoning night life scene.

Walking distance from hotel
A stay at Archer Hotel places you at the heart of a vibrant downtown Napa, with a front row seat to the new urban energy that is re-defining this gateway city. Located less than 90 minutes north of San Francisco, downtown Napa now finds itself at center stage, in part due to an enticing nightlife scene not typically found in its sleepier neighboring towns. Lively venues like Blue Note Napa Jazz Club, Uptown Theater, and Silo’s ensure that the fun continues long after dark, and many of the more than 20 walkable wine tasting rooms offer extended hours for a tasty Napa nightcap. Destination-worthy restaurants - from the casual Gott’s Roadside, to the Michelin-starred La Toque – satiate all appetites. Add a burgeoning shopping district, public art, inviting streetscapes and communal spaces, and it’s no wonder that downtown Napa is the nouveau Napa Valley destination. And it’s all just steps from our front door.
Life is certainly fine in the 1.53 square mile town of Yountville, an elegantly gentrified and centrally located Napa Valley hamlet boasting more Michelin stars per capita than any place in North America. This is Thomas Keller territory, and home to several of the celebrated chef’s restaurants: The French Laundry, Bouchon, ad hoc + addendum, and the fresh-from-the-oven croissant-scented Bouchon Bakery. Boasting a number of other lauded eateries, it’s no wonder that Yountville commands the unofficial title of “Culinary Capital of the Napa Valley.” More than a dozen wine tasting rooms and 40 outdoor artworks - all within walking or biking distance from any point in town - round-out Yountville’s bon vivant atmosphere.

Delivering the best in wine country lifestyle, St. Helena and its quaint two-block Main St. are captivating. Located at the narrowing of the Valley floor, its vibrant retail district is balanced by quiet, Sycamore-lined residential streets featuring winsome 19th century architecture, all surrounded by the stunning Mayacamas mountains and the Napa River. You’ll find dozens of gourmet eateries, clothing and shoe boutiques, housewares, and of course, wine. Napa’s winemaking heritage actually began in St. Helena, home to the region’s first winery, Charles Krug. St. Helena is also home to the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, housed in a not-to-be-missed grand stone building, formerly the Christian Brothers winery.

“Relax…it’s Calistoga.” With this unofficial motto, the small town of Calistoga, located at the base of Mount Saint Helena in the northern most tip of the Valley, invites visitors to enjoy the soothing and curative properties of its famed natural hot springs and volcanic mud baths. These quintessential Calistoga treatments can be enjoyed at spas both casual and chic. Similarly, local restaurants and accommodations range from modest to Michelin-starred. In spite of modern transformations, unpretentious Calistoga (a favored spot for hikers and cyclists) retains a rustic charm and offers a glimpse into the wine country of old.
